Horseracing legends Davy Russell and Jim Bolger will swap the saddle for a sliotar when they take part in the fifth Hurling for Cancer Research game.

The matches have raised €400,000 to fund cancer research projects in Ireland, and it's hoped this year's edition will raise a further €100,000.

Kilkenny's Brian Cody will be in charge of Davy's side, while former Wexford manager Liam Griffin will be coaching Jim Bolger's team.

Speaking at the launch in Galway, Davy said: "It's a thing that has touched nearly every house in the country, including our own. I have an uncle who passed away from cancer. Nearly everywhere you go, you hear of people [that cancer has affected]," he said. "It's very tough."

Davy said the event had gone from strength to strength in recent years. "The [GAA] lads are brilliant. They'll do anything to help out with a charity like that and they help very willingly," he added.
